Not as famous as the flowering cherry but every bit as beautiful is the Eastern redbud, Cercis canadensis. It’s also known as the Judas tree because according to legend, Judas Iscariot hanged himself from a branch of the European species, Cercis siliquastrum.

    Ah, seeing this makes me incredibly happy. I love spring and the colors of spring, but only in nature. The color of this tree is one of my favorite ones – again, just on trees, nowhere else, really. I dislike pastel colors, except on trees and in nature at springtime.
